Reply to "Functional pouch obstruction/catheter emptying"

Hi jfill21,

well, the test doesn’t hurt, so that is a positive! It’s just strange as you get injected with fluid in all your crevasses (only back end if you are a guy) and they have you do different maneuvers and sit on the commode. They take images while you push and don’t push to see how everything functions. It’s awkward but not uncomfortable and, for me at least, the staff had a way of making it feel less bizarre and embarrassing. I got a DVD of all of it and it’s kind of integrating to watch as you can see where things aren’t working once the radiologist pointed it out. 

Ive had quite a few gastrograffin tests and they seem to only show things if they catch you when you are really symptomatic. Anyway, I’m not sure what they do for anything of this yet, I’m still waiting...where I live all hospitals are still under limited services for Covid patients and emergencies only. Hope you have better luck where you are.
